    I have downloaded your addon and you claim "shows demonic fury" after i spent over a hour of looking up how to get demonic fury to show because your installed options menu under interface is not even a menu... like wth is that 4 lined page option menu.. gargabe

    Is this "false" advertisment to get people to download your addon??? if not explain how we can get only a demonic fury bar to show LIKE YOU claim it will all i can see is a mana bar wich is utterly usless for me as a warlock....huge addon discription for only showing a mana bar....pointless no?maby throw in some "how to use this addon" guidance beside saying this is what it does Good Luck

    Pro Tips: donot make addon and publicize it if you will not even teach how it can be used

    EnergyWatch tracks your main resource in the bar, and secondary resources (like combo points, soul shards and demonic fury) as text on the bar.

    There are one or two specs in the game for which this setup is not ideal, and I'm not sure how best to handle them. I'm not keen on the addon doing completely different things for each and every class and spec. That would be a nightmare, especially when people want configurability (one warlock wants DF to remain text on a mana bar, but others want to ignore mana and change the bar to DF).

    Thanks for taking the time to thoroughly evaluate my addon, and for the deeply constructive feedback!

    Can you change the color of the bar? yellow is so ugly (energy)

  • #218

    It's the same yellow as the energy bar under your character portrait ;)

    I've gotten this request before, and it's definitely possible. Just a matter of if/when I get to it.

  • #213

    Any reason why there is no dialogue box to quickly and easily edit the bar height and width? I'm having trouble getting exactly 274 width. No matter how small the changes are I make to the slider, no matter how small the movement I make it just keeps skipping between 273/275. This is annoying me. If there is no way currently to do this, could you implement this feature? I don't see any reason why you can't. Thanks in advance.

  • #214

    Also, no profile system? One more thing: Auto opacity change while out of combat? Just like JSHB.

  • #217

    I think I could make the sliders also have a numerical value that could be hand-edited for the OCD among us (myself included).

    I haven't added profiles because they haven't seemed too necessary. There's not a lot of knobs that get tweaked, so loading up a new toon and making the adjustments to suit your preferences should only take a few moments.

    Realize this is probably pointless, but for nostalgia at least, is there any way to get EWR to update the energy bar amount every 2 seconds?

    I really wish to simulate the old energy ticks, as I loved the mechanic, because the overall rate of energy gain hasn't changed, just been smoothed out by switching to 1 energy ever decisecond (10 energy a second) vs. the old 20 energy every 2 seconds.

    I had left WoW and came back, and I'm pretty sure the old Energy Watch did this, so I'm not sure if the functionality for simulating the wave/tick bar has been lost, thanks for a great addon, regardless!!

    Ohsnapjohn: That's an interesting request. The original purpose of EW was to let you know when the next tick was so you could time your opener to maximize your energy afterwards. With a constant flow of Energy, the timing of your attacks is basically irrelevant, you'll have exactly the same amount of energy at any time t after spending any Energy. I actually was going to kill this project when this change was made, as it didn't seem to be needed anymore. It was at this time that many people said that they liked having the bar, even as just a mobile, compact bar to let them track their current Energy and Combo Points. I completely rewrote EW from the ground up, and realized that it would be easy to track all energy types and most of the alternate resources (Soul Shards, Holy Power, etc). Hence where we are today.

    As for trying to approximate the old behavior, there are a couple problems beyond it not having any real use anymore:
    First, the old EW figured out the timing of your ticks by listening to events from the server when you got your first energy tick on login. I don't believe those energy tick events happen anymore. 
    Second, your energy recovery rate is modified by your Haste stat, so simply ticking every 2 seconds (for 20 Energy) wouldn't be accurate at all. I'm sure theorycrafters have reverse engineered the 'energy per decisecond as modified by haste" algorithm, so I could have it tick every 20 Energy, accurately, but...why? In the current system, all that matters is if you have enough Energy to use whatever ability you want to use next. You can tell how close you are by looking at the bar, or reading the text on it.

    Anyway, that's where I stand at the moment. If you, or anyone has any compelling arguments for a change in EW functionality, post them and I'll see what I can do.

  • #212

    To put it bluntly....

    Holy ever living shit I had no idea haste affected energy ticks now

    Been away from the game for too long....

    In summation, BEST ADDON

  • #209

    I figured it out my mana bar was to small for it to show fury. Id love to be able to have a fury bar without needing mana. 

    Ty for the work put into the addon


  • #207

    It is possible to add more background skins like minimalist and some border skin and size? Another thing: My UI is configured to 400 pixen width bars (sexycoolodwn and quarz), but in this addon the max is 300. Please add some more scale options and skins!!! :) I realy like this addon.

  • #205

    Is there no way to be able to use more than the 4 standard fonts? edit: nevermind i replaced the skurri font throughout wow.

    The combo point tracker is broken on my Monk, its just showing (100) points at all times. (It still works fine on my rouge)

  • #203

    the lua file refers to the "chi"  as "ligth_force" but if modifying this word (that appears 2 times) for the correct "CHI" word, they work.

    on EnergyWatch.lua.
